The Briggs Family and I have jointly decided to remove their opinion piece regarding the new restaurant soon to open where Joe Greensleeves had been.
Like most op-eds, theirs was emotional and personal, but the Briggses' intent was to clarify what they perceived as a public misconception, not to suggest anyone wished ill to the restaurateurs carrying out their vision in the facility.
The Briggses and I support seeking the truth, sharing opinions and engaging with one another, but at this time we feel leaving the post up is harming the local business community and contributing unproductively to a divided Redlands, which we do not want.
As always, this page is open to any members of the public to share their voices by submitting op-eds. I do not accept money for any role in publishing these pieces.
